Birds of a Feather TGIFC95

I was a little bit excited to see this challenge at TGIF Challenges,the minute I saw Hey Chick at Onstage in Brisbane last November, I put it to the top of my wish list. I've actually had a lot of use from it too. It's funny, because everyone seems to love these flamboyant ladies! It was fun to bling this card up with a strand of sequins over the washi tape, and every bird is a different colour, thanks to the Stampin' Up!® Watercolour Pencils. My fingers are crossed that more colours are coming in the Annual Catalogue, because all my ladies are feeling so much more confident about colouring since these were introduced. They're even happier to try the ink now they're getting the hang of it!!!

I've taken another picture from a different angle to try to show up the colours, which are mainly from the brights range with a few neutrals added in. I'm in the process of making one of the cute egg cartons match this card, its been sprayed with alcohol rub and Melon Mambo ink from a re-inker so far.

Last night I had a card class, and during SALE-A-Bration, I always feature one card using a SAB stamp. February's pick was Hey Chick and the ladies were thrilled to bits with their cards. We used a very simple masking technique and coloured  with the Watercolor pencils, with every creation being a little different from the next. Suite Sentiments has been a source for the perfect greeting for this cluster of girls, don't you think? You'll find it at the back of the Occasions Catalogue.

Don't forget to pop over to TGIFC to see all the other birds, and maybe add your own creation.

Happy crafting
Cheers, Rachel
